BB Cream -Maybelline -Dream Fresh BB 8-in-1 Cream

This isn't my everyday bb cream or foundation but I do love using it from time to time, mixed in with my body shop instaglow. It's beautiful. I love light coverage and minimal, natural makeup and this is perfect for that! This is in my top 3 complexion products of all time along with the Mac bb cream and the Mac face and body :) similar effect! Love it! 😍

Liquid -Maybelline -FIT Me Foundation (Matte + Poreless)

Best drugstore foundation ever. It beats my L'oreal Infallible pro-matte and also my Bodyshop Fresh Nude. Meanwhile, if I nab it on sale, it ends up costing me roughly 6$ CAD! I wear it in Sun Beige and it matches me perfectly; it blends great with my Tarte foundation brush but I think I prefer my beauty blender for giving me a flawless, even complexion. If I use my beauty blender, I can even skip out on a primer. My only complaint: I wish it came in a pump so it wouldn't be so darn messy. UPDATE: I have a love-hate relationship with this foundation. For the dirt-cheap price, it's excellent makeup and its efficiency surpasses that of much more expensive products. However it's not without flaws and I'll break it down with pros and cons to better explain my thoughts. PROS: Matte medium coverage, blends particularly well with a beauty blender for a natural look or a brush for more coverage (it does an amazing job at covering some of my undereye circles and I have worn this without concealer), inexpensive, great shade range (Sun Beige is my go-to), not overly scented  CONS: After 4-5 hours, this completely breaks apart on my T-Zone which is quite oily, so much so that you'd think I didn't even apply any makeup at all. It also fades a bit from my undereyes but not as much since the skin in that area is normal. This happens regardless of whether I set or even bake. The other con is the bottle. The no-pump situation makes for pouring out too much product which leads to messes on my vanity. Conclusion: Great foundation for the price but may be better-suited towards normal to drier skin. Someone with very dry skin could easily add a drop of oil to the mix and achieve a great look. I know Matte + Poreless is geared towards Normal to Oily but my treacherous t-zone is just too strong for it!

Brows -Maybelline -Brow Drama Shaping Chalk Powder

I just read the first review on this product and laughed about it being “released to the public” :-)... I totally get the comment, it was UGLY the first couple times I used this lol! But for my very sparse brows this gives me a fairly dramatic, thicker brow that looks much better than pencil. There is a ton of powder on the applicator when you first take it out- tap it out to get excess product off. And apply carefully! It deposits a lot of powder so it’s easy to over due it. But if you are careful to shake off excess and apply with a light hand it looks amazing. I usually get a baseline with a MAC pencil as a shaping guideline and then add this over it for lasting dramatic brows

OMG!!!!!!!!!!! This is mascara is the best. I had been looking for a good mascara and tried different brands. None of them gave them volume or kept a curl. And this one right here gives them volume and kept the curl. I have really small eye lashes and this works perfect.

I bought this other day not thinking much. I really enjoy using this and works really well. This really does add volume and set my brows.

I really wanted to love this foundation. The coverage is great and it looks extremely natural despite it. However, this thing broke me out like crazy! Will not repurchase

After the light "swirls" ran out on this makeup it went on dry and "hard." Coverage was spotchy and uneven and showed every pore. I have to do better than this one!! Have new ones which I will try (as I' m thrifty ) but will not buy again. Thx.

I love this product!!!! I have really acne prone skin and I breakout along my t-zone really bad. But if you like matte foundations then I'm sure you will really love this one. But you have to make sure that you put a moisturizing primer on before you use this product because it can really make your skin dry if you don't. But yes this is my holy grail foundation and I love it because it covers all my acne and it looks very nice on my face. It doesn't look very natural but it does work well for people with acne prone skin. (It doesn't make me break out at all). The only time this product made me break out was when I was wearing it in the hot sun and I was sweating underneath the product and that caused me to break out a little. So I wouldn't recommend this if you are out in the blazing sun and have acne prone skin. But if you are looking for a natural looking foundation this isn't the foundation for you. And it lasts for a long time 💞

Sadly this product is much too peach and dark on my NC15 skintone. I have tried using it alone as well as under another lightweight (and lighter shade) concealer with only fair results. As much as this is raved about I am disappointed and will not repurchase. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Fair is a much better shade for very pale complexions.

For a person who doesn't necessarily loves full coverage, I quite like this foundation. It can grab to my dry patches but mixing in a few drops of a liquid highlighter or strobing cream (or oil) makes it look amazing! It stays on my skin for the whole day, its buildable to a really full coverage for special occasions. It does get into my smile lines but Its not something that bothers me that much.
The foundation itself don't feel heavy on my face, my other face products blend nicely on top of it and I would repurchase it again.

I wanted this highlighter for so long, but I was a bit sceptic..either way I bought it and at first glance it wasn't really what I was expecting but it was kinda okay. The more i used it the less I liked it because I found that it moved my foundation underneath and looked patchy. So I decided to stop using it and then after some time I wanted to play with it again but this time I put it underneath my foundation for that extra ''glow from within'' and it looked super nice. I used it couple more times and I must say that I enjoy it now but not that much that I would repurchase it again.

Eyeliner -Maybelline -Lasting Drama Light Eyeliner Pencil

I bought this "light liner" in Moonlight Purple and that is the reason for my review. I've used liner off and on through the decades, but my prominent upper lids look best with shadow, which I'm allergic to now. I don't like the harsh look of a defined line on my very visible lids, but I have olive green eyes and can wear certain purple shades so I thought I'd give this a try after only doing mascara for 5 months.

Moonlight Purple is a metallic lilac color that is very mid-'80s (when I started wearing makeup) and I really, really love it! I normally like a fig color so this was a surprise, especially as trendy makeup that looks good on a 20-something doesn't necessarily look good on a 40-something. I feel a bit nostalgic about this color and am having some fun when I catch it in the mirror. I honestly didn't think it would look good as it's a cool tone and I have warm, light olive skin, but it looks very pretty and is brightening, as advertised. It also doesn't highlight my camouflaged under-eye circles. This pencil stays put all day for me, but I do apply mineral powder over my moisturizer and have dry skin as I'm in my 40s.

Per the packaging, I love that it's automatic and so easy to apply. The only reason I gave the product 4 stars is that I think gel pencils are just cleaner. This does go on clean and evenly, but after a few days, there's a bit of residue on the side of the plastic tip and the liner tip is a little soft and round, which is hardly a big deal in this light shade and the line thickness is still perfect for me. As it's not a gel liner and has more of a creamy-base, I did also have the tip break off today, which was annoying, but I think the creaminess is what makes the color so pretty and more flattering than gels for those of us who are older and don't need harsh lines on our faces. This color is a trend so for under $5 at Walmart, get it while it lasts--even those of us who wore metallic pastels over 30 years ago.

Pros:
Really does super stay and won't come off without the eraser and lots of work :)
Color is beautiful and I have actually bought a few (Heroin, Voyager, and Pioneer)
Pigment is wonderful

Cons:
Smell is kind of gross
The application requires you to be able to paint as it is like a brush, not a gloss stick or a lipstick
Does not blot or spread well

I have blonde, fine, fair lashes that need mascara. This is my new favourite along with my old favourite Max Factor Masterpiece Max. It's not wet and sloppy and doesn't clump my lashes like so many others. Have repurchased. I got it for £8.99 in the UK at Savers.
